So doesn't that indicate that you do not have a continuum if you leave a gaping hole in the middle, where 16-bit MCU exist?

Maybe instead FSL should call it "The Controller Chopped-Off-Ends-To-Save-Money". Now I am not saying that there is anything wrong with focusing on only these two families (it would save money for us all). Just saying that the word "Continuum" does not fit.
